De Heus Animal Nutrition held an opening ceremony for its first manufacturing plant in Myanmar on Oct. 1, marking an expansion of the Dutch company’s foothold in Asia.

Constructed over six months, the new factory in Yangon, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) has a capacity of 120,000 tons of feed that will serve Myanmar’s livestock farming industry. The company said the site’s output, mostly providing feed for the poultry sector, will eventually be expanded to 240,000 tons. The factory will also produce feed for the pork and cattle sectors.

“We are very pleased with our brand new factory. Our sole objective is to provide farmers with the best quality feed, nutritional, and farm management knowledge. We have more than 100 years of experience in developing and producing animal feed products. Therefore, our quality is very high and based on our experience in Myanmar over the last few years, we can proudly say that farmers are pleased with the high quality level we provide as well,” said Johan van den Ban, general manager of De Heus Myanmar, in a statement. “We have helped farmers to increase their productivity and scale their farm.”

The plant’s location in Yangon is strategically located near the country’s major agricultural production areas, the company said.
